The best camping near Holmes County State Park guide

Overview

About

The hardwood floors in your home may be nice, but they aren鈥檛 anything compared to the beautiful hardwood forests of Holmes County State Park. Built around two lakes that cover 54 acres, this park is high on both scenery and outdoor activities. Both lakes are well stocked with bass, bream, and catfish, but if fishing isn鈥檛 your jam, there are four miles of trails, playgrounds, picnic shelters and an amphitheater. Native plants, birds, and wildlife are in abundance and on Sundays from Memorial to Labor Day, worship services are available at the campground. Nearby area attractions include wildlife refuges, historical homes, and the Catfish Museum and Visitor Center. The friendly park staff is thrilled to tell you everything you need to know.

When to go

The ideal time to visit Holmes County State Park is during the spring and fall when the weather is mild and the natural scenery is at its peak. Summer months can be warm, making early morning or late afternoon the best times for outdoor activities. Winters are generally mild, but it's wise to check for any seasonal closures before planning your trip.
